"Some said that it was the end of days. Some said that it was only the beginning. These pages tell the history of that time yet to come. These are the Chronicles of Future Earth."
The Earth we know is gone, forgotten in the depths of time. In its place is a world of mystery and danger, steeped in a thousand centuries of history and legend, where humankind brushes shoulders with beings and creatures strange and monstrous. The Venerable Autocracy of Sakara, the greatest - and oldest - of the Springtide Civilisations, rules over half the world, led by an immortal God-Emperor whose very word is law. It's a world of deep, dark forests, brooding mountains, timeworn ruins haunted with the ghosts of the past and the weird monsters of the future. Arcane sorcerers explore strange dimensions, terrible priests wield powers from godlike extradimensional intelligences, and mighty soldiers forge new histories from the ruins of the past. It's a time of danger, reckoning, and adventure. Welcome to The Chronicles of Future Earth.
The Chronicles of Future Earth is a 296-page hardback supplement for the RuneQuest 6th edition game, detailing the cultures, peoples, and creatures of the Venerable Autocracy of Sakara, the oldest of the Springtide Civilisations. With extensive histories, maps, and background, rules for ancient treasures and technologies dug from the depths of the earth, and much more, The Chronicles of Future Earth is the first in a new line of RuneQuest supplements produced by Mindjammer Press, providing everything you need to adventure amid exotic civilisations and the ruins of an ancient past in the unimaginably distant future.
"I've been waiting to produce a full-size sourcebook for The Chronicles of Future Earth for several years," says ENnie Award-winning RPG author Sarah Newton (Mindjammer, Monsters & Magic, Achtung! Cthulhu, Burn Shift, Legends of Anglerre), creator of the Chronicles. "RuneQuest 6th edition represents the cutting edge of the d100 system, and is a perfect ruleset for this new expanded edition. I'm really excited to see what the combined forces of RuneQuest 6 and The Chronicles of Future Earth can produce!"
Lawrence Whitaker, co-owner of The Design Mechanism, said: "We're delighted that Mindjammer Press chose RuneQuest 6 as the engine for The Chronicles of Future Earth. It's a wonderful setting and fits perfectly with the RuneQuest ethos. We are very much looking forward to seeing how Sarah and the Mindjammer Press team use the RuneQuest rules for Chronicles and are very happy to be working with them at long last."
The Chronicles of Future Earth will be published by Mindjammer Press and distributed by Modiphius Entertainment Ltd. Scheduled for release Winter 2014/15.
